About our home

Cozy heritage home on 40' lot in downtown Kamloops BC. Tiny galley kitchen fits one cook. Ethnic, ecclectic, antique furnishings. Hardwood floors. Immaculate and well cared for. Fenced & hedged private yard. Security System.

W/D. Gas stove, gas fireplace, gas central heat. Electric space heaters for lovely downtstairs bedroom & bath--ithey're in an addition that's not yet completed. Or move spare mattress into office upstairs.

Character homes neighbourhood. Walk to everywhere--park, river, movies, theatres, grocery store, doctors, mall, library, museum, funky shops, or take public bus (eg. to Thompson Rivers University, Wildlife Park) from central bus stop 2 blocks away.

Curling rink is one block away. Small lakes for outdoor skating 20 minutes drive.

5 min. drive & still in the city, you can walk through a spectacular desert canyon where you are in total solitude and can't see anything manmade. After 30 minutes hike you will be stunned by a brown forest totally destroyed by pinebeetles. It's an eery experience to walk through a tree graveyard--but only on a calm day 'cause trees do blow down in strong winds.

View of desert hills & sagebrush country. 4 hours drive east to Rocky Mtns (Valemont). 4 hours drive west to Vancouver. 2 1/2 hours drive to 108 Mile Ranch and The Hills Spa (google them!).

Fantastic downhill/cross country skiing at Sun Peaks (google it). There is a bus that your teenagers can safely go on to go snowboarding while you check out great restaurants and cafes close by. Or take "The Big 6" -- my favourite winter walking tour of 6 city centre thrift shops.

Me and my husband are both retired. He from Saskatchewan Highways, me as educator who worked the gammut from K-gr. 12, then principal and finally teacher educator at university.

We walk, ski, curl, read and are both busy social activists. Currently husband does carpentry, I do spool knitting & paint furniture.
